From 24/08/2018 to 26/08/2018, Foligno
Dancity is an international electronic music and culture festival, in Foligno, Umbria, for its twelfth year on Friday 24th, Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August 2018 in some of the town’s most attractive and historically and culturally important places.
The festival’s human dimension, which takes the form of historic locations set deep in Italy’s verdant heart, expresses Dancity’s essence. It is a festival based on artistic-cultural research and quality and is an occasion for exchange and growth for a diversified public. During these three late August days international artists will perform from afternoon to night with their work and in concerts, with live and DJ sets, audio-video performances, installations, workshops and lectures.
Dancity focuses, as always, on great artists who have left their mark on the history of electronic music alongside less well-known names who are undoubtedly some of the moment’s most interesting and novel. The headliners include Tangerine Dream, a historic band set up in the 1970s who will perform at the festival as the only Italian date on a tour, electronic music pioneer Suzanne Ciani with Quadraphonic Live, Moritz Von Oswald and reggae singer Tikiman, Nu Guinea, presenting the live Nuova Napoli band for the first time at Dancity, and the young and talented Amelie Lens.
The festival is organised by Associazione Culturale Dancity, set up in 2006 with a desire to explore an artistic and musical panorama in continual ferment and change in a dynamic equilibrium between a desire for novelty and experimentation and a need for constant echoes from the so-called traditional artistic and musical productions.
With a desire to offer new possibilities and ways of measuring up as a stimulant to participation, Dancity organises events projected in the international music panorama on the basis of partnerships/design with the most interesting local, Italian and European bands.
